  2. Hey @TheBeerHawk will you be getting any of @cloudwaterbrew's DIPA v8 in stock? If so, when?

  3. Today marks the release of Bikers, a big new free DLC for GTA Online. Lots of new content in this one including Motorcycle Clubs, Clubhouses, Businesses, 13 new vehicles, 5 new weapons, loads of new clothes and tats, and a new adversary mode. Probably best to let Rockstar go into detail about all that so check out the Newswire article for more info on that. Trailer below.

  5. Good news for those of you who were fans of The Lost and Damned; the next free DLC update for GTA Online will be in the form of biker gangs. Rockstar haven't given an exact release date for this yet (other than Coming Soon™), here's what they have to say about it: We'll keep you updated as to when we'll be seeing this released in game.
  6. The latest free DLC for GTA Online is out now in the shape of Cunning Stunts. Good news for everyone who likes to perform stunning... stunts in the game. Of course there's also the usual addition of brand new cars, clothing, accessories and whatnot. Unfortunately there's no way to create your own stunt races yet, though Rockstar have pointed out that this will be forthcoming on the 2nd of August, as well as more races and vehicles. If you want to win yourself some GTAV merch then Rockstar also have a sweepstakes open right now you can enter. If not, you could watch the trailer below, or you could read the full details on this update, or if that's not your thing there's always the full detailed patch notes.
  7. Might give it a go anyway and see if it improves in time.

      Hmm... I think this was probably in reply to someone on twitter, I actually forgot the forums pulls statuses from there.

  10. So yeah we're still alive... I know it's been a while since we last posted but no, we're not dead. Anyway, GTA Online is still going strong and Rockstar continue to provide free DLC updates for it. Next up is an update called Further Adventures in Finance and Felony. Today they released a trailer showcasing some of the new content. Check that out below. The DLC will hit your systems on the 7th June, and here's what Rockstar have to say about it.

  15. RT @getmondo: 1 minute, 36 seconds - the fastest @Crowdcube round ever! Thank you everyone

  16. Looking into it. I don't think the site has been compromised, it's probably something Google automatically assumed after it indexed a topic posted by a spambot or something. Will try and get it removed asap.
  17. Earlier today Rockstar released the latest free DLC for GTA Online - Executives and Other Criminal. If you're rich, you're in for a treat as a ton of cool stuff has been added to the game for you to blow your load of money on, including a super yacht. Watch the trailer below to see what you'll be able to get up to now. Rather than copy and paste the article here, you can head over to the Newswire for full details on what's included in this latest update.

  19. Thought I'd make a pinned topic about this because the way Rockstar stops people from frying their GPU's is by limiting the graphics settings based on your graphics card's memory. Now this may sound like a good idea, however it only takes into account dedicated video RAM the graphics card has. For example, at the time of writing I have a nVidia GeForce 8800GTS with 320MB of RAM. This card can also make used of shared RAM (memory taken from your system's RAM, of which I currently have a total of 4GB). I'm not sure how much it is possible to use, but DxDiag reports me as having 2GB of graphics memory, pretty awesome, that means it's taken 1.7GB from my system RAM, meaning I've got 2.3GB left, plenty to play GTA IV. So, naturally I want to play on as higher settings as possible for my computer. But because the game only recognises 320MB of that video RAM, I'm severely limited. Here's what to do to get around those limits: Retail version instructions Create a shortcut on your desktop to the LaunchGTAIV.exe - by default this will be in C:\Program Files\Rockstar Games\Grand Theft Auto IV Right click the shortcut and click Properties Make sure the Shortcut tab is selected. You should see a field called "Target", edit this to say the following, making sure the path is correct, I'm just using the default here: That includes the quote marks and the options coming after the link to the path Click Apply Double click the shortcut to launch the game. Steam version instructions In steam, right click the game right click the game in Steam and go to Properties > Launch Options Add the command: -norestrictions -nomemrestrict Launch the game Screenshot To prove it works, here's what I ended up with. What happens if I'm a dumbass and turn up all the settings too high? Like I showed in the above screenshot? Well, this is what happened to me. There's simply not enough memory available to load up all the textures. Upon leaving the safehouse I was greeted by the following: However, the player models looked amazing! NOTE: Remember to be sensible with the settings. If you've got a shitty card then there's really no point turning everything up high, it'll be way too laggy to play. Play around with the settings until you reach a compromise between nice quality, and good framerate.
